Ív Sig 9II/4 — lǫndum ‘lands’

Sótti breiða        borg Jórsala
ǫrr oddviti        út í lǫndum,
áðr í vatni,        þvís vígði guð,
Sigurðr af sér        synðir þvægi.

Ǫrr oddviti sótti breiða borg Jórsala út í lǫndum, áðr Sigurðr þvægi af sér synðir í vatni, þvís guð vígði.

The brave leader visited the large city of Jerusalem in distant lands, before Sigurðr washed away his sins in the water which God had consecrated.
